H and Dicky’s Corner: Weekly Fantasy Predictions


Solid Gold:

Carson Wentz-QB, Phi — Carson Wentz has been lighting it up this year…actually the whole Philadelphia Eagles team has been lighting it up this year. He has a handful of different weapons, plus a steady, healthy workhorse in LeGarrette Blount. Expect Wentz to continue his superstar play.

Leonard Fournette-RB, Jax — Leonard Fournette has already made a name for himself, and the Jags keep feeding him. His heavy workload mixed with his young legs and powerful running make for a scary running back. He’s easily a starter in any league.

Dez Bryant-WR, Dal — Dez Bryant is quietly one of the best wide receivers in the league. He is Dak’s favorite target and definitely the go-to guy in Dallas. He is ridiculously successful in the end zone and can shred any secondary with ease.throw up the X, and throw Dez in your starting lineup.

Cameron Brate-TE, TB — Don’t look now, but Cameron Brate is the number three tight end and no one saw this coming. No one. His value takes a bit of a drop due to Jameis Winston’s injury, but he’s still a TE1 due to his heavy usage.  


Alvin Kamara-RB, NO — Let’s get this straight, the New Orleans Saints have two running-backs who are capable of putting up double digits this week in Ingram and Kamara. This is hard to believe due to the fact that since Drew Brees arrived in New Orleans in 2006, they have relied heavily on their passing game. We expect both backs to put up good numbers, with Kamara getting the majority or touches.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins-TE, NYJ — After getting robbed of a second touchdown last week against the Patriots, Josh McCown will be looking for Seferian-Jenkins throughout the entire game against the Dolphins this week. We expect at least one or two touchdowns from the 6;6” TE this week.

Blake Bortles-QB, Jax — Blake Bortles is due for a bounce back. His receivers are well capable of helping him accomplish that. With Fournette getting a lot of attention from defenses, look for Bortles to quietly go for 300 yards and 2 TDs against the Colts D.

Pierre Garcon-WR, SF — Whether it’s Brian Hoyer or C.J. Beathard at quarterback for the Niners this week, Pierre Garcon will play a huge part in the passing game. The aging receiver continues to prove to everyone that he is not done yet. The past three weeks, Garcon was targeted a total of 31 times. You’d be silly not to start him in your lineup this week.


Jordy Nelson-WR, GB — Call me (Noel) crazy, but don’t count on any of Green Bay’s options. Davante Adams and Jordy Nelson take away from each other. Nelson leads in TDs, but Adams leads in yardage. Nelson will still be targeted, but his success will easily drop with Rodgers out. Like I said, he’s a no-go for no.

Philip Rivers-QB, LAC — In my opinion (Hunter), Philip Rivers  is one of the worst quarterbacks, not only in fantasy, but in the entire league. Let’s not forget that the Chargers play the Broncos this week at home. Much like every week, don’t expect much out of Philip Rivers.

Coby Fleener-TE, NO — Coby Fleener’s production has dropped significantly since his two solid games in week one and two. Brees has plenty of other targets that he will find this week, such as, Michael Thomas, Willie Snead, Alvin Kamara,

Joe Mixon-RB, Cin — Starting any Bengals running back is not the best idea, especially against the Steelers defense. They split downs between Mixon, Giovani Bernard, and Jeremy Hill, which makes all of them basically unplayable in fantasy.

Injury Report-

Cam Newton — Newton is listed as questionable for this week.

Aaron Rodgers — Rodgers is likely out the remainder of the season with a broken collarbone.

Jay Ajayi, Melvin Gordon and DeMarco Murray — All three RBs are questionable heading into week 7.

Stefon Diggs, Chris Hogan, Keenan Allen — Like the RBs, these receivers are questionable for this week.

Charles Clay — Clay is out for a few weeks with a knee injury.

Delanie Walker — Walker has had a lingering calf injury that has been bothering him for the entirety of the week.
